Shoe Trend: Blue

By  | 

Recently I was browsing the shoe selection at Neiman Marcus as well as Nordstrom and noticed there is a bit of madness over the hue blue going around. I headed over to Pantone to see what the trend reports say and lo and behold BLUE is one of the colors to watch out for this upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 season.

The two blues on the report are Placid Blue which is reminiscent of a powder blue or baby blue and Dazzling Blue which is like a Lapis Lazuli.

Of course, I had to go over board and put together the best sandals, flats, and pumps I could find that made me go absolutely bonkers over blue. I normally wouldn’t opt for light blue but many of the available heels, especially the suede ones, really got me itching for a pair to wear this Spring.

Check out some of my favorite in each of the blue hues below.

    I like the rich blues; I also find blue can be a tough color to work with in some cases... ;)

      I love the rich blues too. But I'm very surprised by the light placid blue. I'm really looking forward to seeing it more this upcoming season. I want to see the many different ways they'll be worn.
